American Wine Blog Award Winners
I'm very happy to announce the winners of the 2009 American Wine Blog Awards. The winners in the seven categories each had to be nominated first, then be chosen as finalists by a panel of judges, then be judged both by the public as well as by the same set of judges. There was most certainly some vetting going on.
Many of the winners will be familiar because they've all earned good sized audiences. But they will also be recognized by anyone familiar with blogs as those who work very hard to deliver regular and outstanding information to to their readers. The winners work hard at this.
So with that:
Best Wine Writing On a Blog
Best Graphics or Presentation
Best Single Subject Blog
Best Business/Industry Blog
Best Winery Blog
MICHEL-SCHLUMBERGER'S "BENCHLAND BLOG"
Best Wine Reviews
Best Overall Blog
The sponsors of the American Wine Blog Awards are
The winners of the 2009 American Wine Blog Awards will be presented with their Riedel Trophy at a ceremony occurring at the 2009 Wine Bloggers Conference.
Congrats to all. Well deserved. I hope the buzz and publicity given to the awards brings a lot more attention to all the amazing wine blogs that exist out there.
Congrats to all the winners. All deserving blogs, among the numerous ones that deserve praise and readership.
